Easy Overnight Oats

Whilst the days are certainly starting to get longer, a ready made breakfast to start your day is never a bad idea

Overnight oats are the perfect thing to kick start your day and have so many added benefits. This includes things like being high in fibre to being a good source of protein. They are also what is known as a slow-release carbohydrate meaning they help you feel full for longer and don’t cause a blood sugar level spike like other types of carbs.

Overnight oats do exactly what they say on the tin in that they are prepared the night before meaning you have a quick go-to brekkie in the morning. Pretty much anything goes ingredients-wise, once you have the basics, which are :

  • Oats, naturally, but make sure to get rolled oats.
  • Milk, this can of course be a plant-based milk

From here anything goes be it fresh fruit, seeds, natural sweeteners, nut butters, absolutely anything to give you the get-up and go.
